P. Vasu has now created Chandramukhi 2, the follow-up to Chandramukhi, one of the greatest horror movies ever created. Raghava Lawrence and Kangana Ranaut have prominent roles in the sequel. The film was well-marketed and debuted today on theater screens. Let’s have a look at it.

Story:

Rao Ramesh advises an affluent family led by Radhika Sarathkumar to make prayers to their family god because they have been experiencing a lot of problems. The temple where they must offer prayers is close to Vettaiya’s palace. Radhika’s family has a lease on the palace from Basavaiah (Vadivelu). However, they are mostly unaware of Chandramukhi’s malevolent spirit’s existence in the palace. What difficulties afterward faced Radhika’s family? How is Radhika’s family connected to Madhan (Lawrence)? What does Chandramukhi’s spirit desire specifically? The central theme of Chandramukhi 2 is this.

Plus Points:

The movie features a top-notch performance by National Award-winning actress Kangana Ranaut. She had a gorgeous appearance and had great screen presence. Her dancing is incredible.

The film’s well-crafted Chandramukhi history is one of its strong points. The creators changed the plot when Kangana performed the title part. The second half features some decent drama. Lawrence had a lot of conviction in his performance as the Vettaiyan.

Lawrence and Kangana engage in a well-constructed action scene near the film’s conclusion. Lawrence and Kangana both displayed strong intensity in this action scene. Several of the heartfelt sequences turned out wonderfully. Lakshmi Menon received an unexpected part, which she nailed.

Minus Points:

Chandramukhi 2’s main flaw is that it barely ever contains any exhilarating scenes. Even without jump scares, this film lacks the eerie setting that is a prerequisite for a horror film. These are the components that one would anticipate from a horror movie, yet they are absent from this sequel.

Fans of this franchise will be dissatisfied in terms of thrills because the emphasis is more on drama. With a few odd sequences, the first half as a whole seems disconnected. The comedy that made Chandramukhi unique turned out to be one of the worst weaknesses of Chandramukhi 2.

The overdone and antiquated humor really frustrates viewers, and Vadivelu’s role is formulaic. Not only that, but the shoddy love song also detracts from the movie.

The structure of the screenplay is mostly unchanged from the original, with a few tweaks to the backstory. The first film does a good job of generating suspense, but the second one lacks any feeling of urgency and falls flat. It would have been possible to cut out a lot of the first half.

Technical considerations

The lack of exciting parts can be attributed to the writing team rather than M.M. Keeravani, who attempted to elevate the movie with his background soundtrack. Rajasekhar’s filming is competent. Furthermore, the editing is subpar.

With regard to Chandramukhi 2, director P. Vasu just accomplished a passable job. He added some dramatic flourishes to Chandramukhi’s history.

Verdict:

Chandramukhi 2 as a whole functions to a certain extent since the second half is superior to the first. With her performance, Kangana Ranaut steals the stage, while Lawrence also makes an impression in the king role. But it lacks the exciting scenes that one would anticipate from a horror movie. The early half and the stupid humor are the biggest flaws. While Chandramukhi 2 isn’t a poor movie, it also doesn’t stand out from the crowd the way the previous one did. So, it’ll be a just-okay viewing in the end.
